Responsible Drinking 022

Last week was the annual arrive alive DRIVE SOBER campaign kick off at the Toronto Police Service Headquarters. The Ontario Community Council on Impaired Driving (OCCID) started this campaign (now in its 20th year!) to help drivers make the decision not to drink and drive, preventing senseless injuries and saving lives.

Molson, along with other organizations (Ministry of Transportation adn The Beer Store.), is a proud partner of OCCID.

As the first long weekend approaches, I thought it would be appropriate to also write about a great organization that Molson has been working with for over 10 years – Taxiguy

Taxiguy is an amazing organization that focuses on getting people home safely.  How does it work?

  • You call one easy-to-remember toll free number – 1-888-TAXIGUY
  • In 700 cities across Canada
  • Automatically directs caller to nearest cab company

A very unique service that Taxiguy offers is its Taxi Dollars Program – taxi currency that can be redeemed as a fare.  It works just like a gift certificate… see the video below!

Justin Raymond is the creator of Taxiguy, and he kindly agreed to do a quick interview with me at the arrive alive kick-off about Taxiguy.

As a final thought…for those of you who have children, friends, nieces, nephews, etc.  in university and college…maybe instead of sending them money for groceries or gift cards for their birthdays….send them a safe ride home — taxi dollars! 

Have a great long weekend….Cheers :)
